Pumpkin spice lattes, candy corns and decorative gourds – it’s officially fall! And we know that while all holidays are joyously observed in Stapleton, Halloween may be the ultimate community celebration.
In fact, we interviewed two best friends – and Stapleton residents – about their plans for Halloween.
Ava and Maya, both age 7:
What are you planning to dress up as?
Ava: A cowgirl with a big hat and cool boots.
Maya: I’m doing a pirate thing.
What is your favorite part of Halloween?
Ava and Maya laughing in unison: TRICK OR TREATING.
Ava: I like to eat the candy while I am trick or treating so I don’t waste any.
Maya: I also like to carve pumpkins and make them extra scary.
What was I thinking – of course trick or treating is the best. What’s your favorite candy?
Maya: I don’t know, Twizzlers?
Ava: Definitely Skittles – especially the red ones. I give the yellow and greens to my sisters.
What is your favorite part of living in Stapleton:
Ava: I have a lot of friends and they all live nearby. I like to walk home from school with them and we go to each other’s houses.
Maya: There are lots of parks to play in, and each one is different.
Looking for pumpkins to carve or adorn your front porch? don’t forget about the Stapleton Pumpkin Patch held on Founder’s Green during the last Farmers Market of the year. Shoppers will receive a coupon for every $5 they spend at the vendors’ booths, and coupons can be redeemed for a free pumpkin. Get Details here.
In fact, if you think your Stapleton porch is the spookiest, snap a photo and upload it to Instagram using the hashtag #SpookyStapleton. During the last week of October, all of the #SpookyStapleton images will be uploaded into a Facebook album on the Stapleton Facebook page, and fans will vote for their favorite by “liking” their favorite image.
And if you need to score oversized spiders, cobwebs and fake tombstones, make sure to visit Halloween City for a great selection of spooky décor. The store is now open in The Shops at Northfield Stapleton and located in between Bass Pro Shops and Target.
